Vicky Smith-Swain secures unanimous acquittal in case involving historic sexual allegations

October 5, 2023

The case involved a serious sexual allegation dating back over 16 years prior, involving a child under 13. Vicky meticulously examined the evidence and the unused digital media material. She scrutinised the historic nature of the allegations and analysed every detail to piece together an accurate representation of events from over a decade ago. Her thorough cross-examination exposed inconsistencies and uncertainties in the prosecution case. Vicky adeptly highlighted the challenges of the delay and the loss of potentially exculpatory evidence.

Charlotte Rimmer was also involved in the case previously, having skilfully conducted the pre-recorded s.28 cross-examination of a witnesses.

Vicky was instructed by GT Stewart Solicitors.
